  Our Training Philosophy

Our training programmes have been developed and refined since 1997. Our training is effective because it is:

  • Innovative: using activities such as, formal delivery, participants activities, shared knowledge, case studies, videos, role plays and small group work to ensure involvement and interest.
  • Carrot - not a stick: challenging attitudes towards diversity and equality without being confrontational, so that participants question their own beliefs, assumptions and behaviour.
  • Self reflective: concentrating on behaviours which are required by your organisation's policy, by high standards of business conduct and by the law.
  • Broad in coverage: covering legislation, diversity and 'difference' in its broadest sense, and gender, ethnicity, disability and other specific areas in your policy, in employment and service delivery.
  • Sector specific: ensuring that components of the training, such as case studies and policy and procedural matters, are relevant to you.
  • Delivered by experienced facilitators: our associate are able to offers sector specific, equality and diversity experience and knowledge, management experience and organisational know how.

We will discuss and agree the precise content of the training programme (we offer pre- training questionnaires to all staff to help this process). All training is then genuinely tailored to your needs and circumstances, whether you want a single workshop or an in- house programme.

All our training is supported by high quality hand books. Pre-course activities are used to encourage delegates to consider the issues before the training and to ensure that the programme is tailored to specific needs. All programmes have a set day/half day rate. If an organisation requires training that is in excess of 5 consecutive days we will negotiate the cost of training. All our work is evaluated and changes made where necessary to ensure quality and relevance.
